A member of a schoolboy safety patrol in one of our typical cities tells the story of how children can prevent accidents by taking wise and careful traffic precautions.
"At the end of 1955 it had delivered useful traffic safety pointers to 11,823,000 young Americans in the 5th, 6th and 7th grades. Recorded showings, as noted on the records of the General Motors Film Library, exceed 75,000." [Business Screen 17:6, 1956]

Subject: Jam Handy, Detroit
In the 30+ years I lived in Detroit and vicinity I never heard a Brooklyn? Jersey? accent like that kid's. Did Jam Handy hire some actor kid from out east?
The east side of Detroit did however have its own accent - the Hamtramck accent which didnt have a "th" sound. examples: [kids scrapping in the car] "Cut it out, now, boh-dah-yahs!" [in a store] "Will there be anything else?" "No, Debbie all." as well as the phrases: "dat dere," "dis here." They also called a viaduct a vye-dock. Mount Elliot Street was pronounced "Mun D'ellyit"
Great flick from the good ol days when Detroit cops had nothing better to do than canoodle with elementary school safety boys.
Great shot of people crossing Woodward towards Hudson's (biggest department store in the world - 18 floors and 3 basements!).
